Lola Monroe Describes Tupac’s Influence On Her Song “Makaveli”

lola-monroe

Lola Monroe recently dropped a single “Makaveli” from her mixtape “Lipstick & Pistols.” As soon as we saw the title, we immediately thought of the late, great rapper Tupac Shakur.

In a recent interview, Lola explained how she came up with the song “Makaveli” and how Tupac has influenced so much of her work throughout her rap career.

I was listening to ‘All Eyez on Me’ a lot around that time,” Monroe said when asked about recording “Makaveli”. “I was in L.A. and that’s just what the beat gave me and a lot of times when I write my records, I allow the beat and the feeling of the beat to just lead my hook and the emotion that comes out of me. That’s how that record got created.

We all get our inspiration from somewhere. If you missed the “Makaveli” track, listen to it below:

Tamar Braxton Reveals “Love & War” Album Cover + Willow Smith’s New Song “Drowning” Ft. Mecca Kalan

Willow Smith is back with another deeper-than-we-thought-a-12-year-old-could-feel track called "Drowning".  Check out the melodic track that’s all about being drowned by the actions of a deep love, plus Tamar Braxton‘s new "Love & War" album cover…

 

Apparently Willow Smith is going through some things.  The pre-teen released a controversially sensual video "#SUMMERFLING" last month.  Now she’s back with a brokenhearted-style song featuring Mecca Kalani.  The somber yet pretty piano-ballad is all about a girl who suffered a broken heart at the hands of the boy she loves.  And he’s watching her drown in her sorrows, yet he can’t move on himself.

Check it out above.

Andy Cohen SHOOTS DOWN Kenya Moore’s Reported SALARY! + Wendy Williams Dances It Up In Her New Remixed Theme Song Commercial

 photo BQM3daLCIAAl7AEjpglarge.jpg

Wendy Williams has remixed her theme song. Watch Wendy dancing inside and see why reports about Kenya Moore’s $ 600K "RHOA" salary might not be true.

 

Previously, we told you about Kenya Moore getting a "RHOA" pay raise around the sum of $ 600K, but now the head honco at BRAVO is casting a side-eye on the report. While responding to a tweet, Andy Cohen implied that folks never get it right when they comment on BRAVO salaries.

Oh wells…..We’re sure Kenya will still be able to find a suitable "rented" mansion for season 6 (no matter the exact size of her paycheck).

 

And……. 

Wendy Williams will return to the airwaves on September 16, and in the meantime, she’s released a new dance remix to her show’s theme song. The clip was shot in Central Park and choreographed by Derek Mitchell.  Her girl Kenya Moore tweeted her support……

IT’S HERE: Beyonce’s FULL “Standing On The Sun” Song

The much anticipated HQ studio version of Beyonce‘s "Standing On The Sun" track is here. Twirl your way inside to get a listen….

You’ve heard a snippet of the song a million times on Mrs. Carter’s hot H&M commercial.  And now, the sultry diva (or someone who leaked it) has given us the full version of the song we’ve been hearing for months now.

The Sia-penned song gives us a sexy summer "Baby Boy" vibe.

The song does not yet appear on iTunes and Beyonce herself has not mentioned it via a handwritten note or huge poster size announcement on her website.  So it looks like it was a leak that wasn’t necessarily supposed to drop just yet.  But with just one day until her BET Experience debut in L.A., it’s only right we get a lil something something to whet our whistles for this kick off of the North American leg of the Mrs. Carter Show world tour.

Check out the full "Standing On The Sun" track below:
